  • Adiki,

    I think your question is a bit too broad. You might need to say what tools you are trying to use.

    If you need to do this at the wire level (i.e. if you can write the required network code), then you probably want to start with the Exchange protocol description (which you can download in PDF form from, and work down into the other parts

    There are higher level tools (e.g. some from Microsoft, libmapi from as a GPLv3 library) and other options (e.g. access the mailbox using IMAP4 or POP3). Difficult to say which might be useful without more detail.

    Before posting your question to the Exchange Development forum, you will want to review the Exchange Developer Center ( and the Exchange Server documentation

    Once you have scoped your question you should search the forum in case someone has already asked a similar question.

    • Exchange Server version.
